Why Us

Because we care. We don’t just serve clients because it is our job, we go beyond that, building long-standing relationships and being part of our clients’ teams. Having been in the IP business for well over a decade, we at KASS International have seen our fair share of business owners who have lost out in the race to secure their IP rights to unscrupulous copycats or competitors, and those who had obtained IP rights but lacked proper protection due to inadequate advice.

We assist everyone, from entrepreneurs to universities to listed corporations in securing and exploiting their IP rights, whether it relates to patent, trademark, industrial design, copyright, or other forms of IP, both locally and worldwide. We also have helped start-ups value their IP in order to secure funding from various sources, including venture capitalists.

Our years of experience of specializing in this field of law has given us an added advantage of being familiar with many issues faced by local and foreign businesses and universities. We have notable IP experience and in-depth IP knowledge in industries such as engineering, chemical, mechanical, electronics, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, IT and software, oil and gas, financial and insurance services, retail outlets, food and beverage, education, fashion, sports and music.

In acknowledgment of our exceptional service to clients, KASS has been recognized as one of the top IP firms in Malaysia by Chambers & Partners, UK, and also consecutively voted as one of the best IP firms in Malaysia in surveys conducted by Asia IP magazine, Corporate International magazine, and Managing Intellectual Property magazine (a Euromoney publication, UK).

We also take pride in the recognition given to our principal, Mr. P. Kandiah by Asialaw Leading Lawyers as one of Asia’s top legal advisors. Mr. Kandiah was identified by the 2007-2009 Asialaw Leading Lawyers survey as one of the most highly-acclaimed legal experts in the Intellectual Property field in the Asia-Pacific region.

Here’s some recent recognition we received that might help make your decision easier:

“There is nothing weak about KASS; it is highly organised and the work it produces is always of a very good quality.” A specialist consultancy, it understands clients’ IP assets better than anyone and is favoured for the strategic insights it can provide. The dexterous team monitors files with extreme care and diligence, and never misses a deadline, ensuring that its clients’ trademarks get the airtight protection they require. With branch offices in Singapore and Indonesia, it can advise on a regional basis, lending it further appeal in this competitive region.



IP ensemble KASS International tenders “nuanced and tailored” prosecution and commercialisation services to a diverse clientele, comprised of both foreign and domestic entities. At the centre of the “first-class” unit is founder P Kandiah, a well-established figure in the Malaysian IP community. His “wise advice informed by decades of high-quality, varied experience” sets him apart.
